About Child Care

Our Philiosphy


We strive to provide a place where all feel at home, welcome and accepted. Children at our Centre will learn through play developing physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally at their own level and pace. We are free from discrimination regardless of culture, gender, religion, ability or appearance.

We will implement the National Quality Framework Practices and meet the National Regulations aiming at high quality. This will in turn meet the expectations of our children, families, community and educators. We will embed sustainable practices that will make our staff, children and families environmentally aware of the future protection of our health, planet and humanity.

Sue Gilbert


Sue Gilbert, began her childcare career as a primary school teacher. She studied a Diploma of Teaching, majoring in Early Childhood Education. Sue graduated from college in 1982 and taught for 5 years before leaving to start her family.

Whilst raising her family in QLD, Sue operated a caravan park for 8 years. She has taught in schools in Derby, Perth and Yarloop, and was also the operational teacher of Temple David Kindergarten. Sue then spent several years as a relief teacher across Mandurah and worked for Wanslea Family Services.

Sue moved on to start her first ACE After School Care Service in 2005 and upon doing this she realised that the community had a strong need for affordable, supportive and family-oriented early learning services, as well as a before and after school program to accommodate the needs of the ever growing amount of parents having to travel further for their work.

Sue then expanded the Out of School Hours program and added a  Vacation Care Program, which is now known as A1 Fun!

Sue acquired the property for the ACE Early Learning Centre in 2010 and started the Early Learning Centre.
